Its Latin, Afro, Afro-Latin, Caribbean inspired music created by slowing down a Dutch house record at the hands of an American. Yeah I know, music now days needs to come with a geography lesson and Moombahton is no exception. But Im not here to debate origins or founding fathers, Im here to figure out where the scene is heading. After a night of watching womens’ waists, busts and everything else that could be surgically enhanced move to these records, I was instantly a fan. Its got good rhythm, bass and a few funky sounds plus some catchy hip hop samples here and there. But where will it go next? Will it be the new dubstep in two years, the word on everyone’s lips until Skrillex comes along and fills it with noise and scares off the locals? (I ACTUALLY LIKE SKRILLEX) or will it remain something only us 4am party people know about while bumping uglies with the girl in the club wearing pink Uggs, a bikini top, thick frame red glasses and a gold chain that says “Gangsta”.

Is it just me or has the entire party scene switched up over the years.  I started to take notice a few years back that there was less and less people at the bar while more and more people took to the floor.  Now mind you, I have switched hangout spots from “regular clubs”  to the more authentic “one off raves” because they have the most original, innovative and best mix of music, so that could be the reason, but I’ve noticed this new trend in Toronto, London and Madrid so far.  Also, speaking with friends in various parts of the world they’ve noticed the same pattern.  It seems to be the only people hanging at the bar or getting smashed on average are people around 30 or older..the new generation is spending more time skanking until their shoes are worn.  Now theres the argument that there are more club drugs circulating and all that but thats another topic for another day.  By no means am I saying that young folks aren’t drinking until their livers check out on vacation.  Im just noticing that there’s less people over dressed and holding up the walls with a drink and more people letting loose and having a good time with a bottle of water..As I said before it may just be where I hangout.  Just an observation and I may be wrong.

who says these kids don’t dance anymore? …not in my house
